Tips for fall break

Fun out and about in Dordrecht with the kids during the autumn vacations. We give some great tips for indoor and outdoor activities to get out and about.

Beavers, pellets, playing and climbing in the Biesbosch

On October 21, during the Kinderbeaverocht (all ages) you will visit the Beaver Forest and take a look at the stuffed beaver in front of the window of the Biesbosch Center. Aboard the whisper boat you will search for beaver tracks. Tuesday, October 25 you can pick pellets (from 8 years of age) and investigate what the birds and predators have eaten. Admire the beautiful fall colors and mushrooms with the family excursion on Thursday, Oct. 27 (all ages).
Go climbing and scrambling in the junior forest of the Klimbos (6 years and up) next to the Biesboschcentrum Dordrecht. An exciting adventure for a cool vacation day. In another part of the Biesbosch you will find a whole new play forest (6-12 years). In play forest de Elzen near the Viersprong you can build huts, sail across on a raft and mess around with water.

Every day LetterLAB and Griezelbus

During the autumn vacations there is something to do every day at the Museum of Education. Visit the exhibition tree rose fish, do the super cool treasure hunt - with a Griezelbus escaperoom (9 to 15 years) - or get to work with the letter passport in the letter forest (4 to 8 years).

There is also LetterLAB at the museum every day, with fun games, campfire reading and craft activities. The activities in Letterlab are suitable for children ages 3 to about 12.

Singing along, going to the children's theater or cinema
